I haven't had the time to look at your script, but do you think you
could use touch(1) to set the modification time, with yet another set of
properties?

On a related note, I noticed that checking out CVS repositories into
/tmp during the night might be a bad thing; CVS sets the modification
time to the "proper" time, leading to various /tmp-cleaning scripts
happily removing the files... :( So it might be a good idea NOT to set
mtime backwards.
